I was wanting to do a project where old Sierra sprite characters meet up with and/or fight against modern (polygonal) FPS game characters. While I'm finding resources for the sprites fairly enough (most legal, don't worry), I find that my imagination runs away with me, desiring more animation than the sprites are capable of.
MFW limited animation
It's not for DA, but for a machinima I plan to post to YouTube. It's less a full-blown machinima and more like an animated sprite comic combined with Garry's Mod and Source Filmmaker animation. I'm still debating how much animation I should use. I was originally going to have the Sierra characters just be a talking heads in boxes, just like their portrait animations, but as I develop my story, I realize I may need to improve my lot a little more than that. Maybe even get some custom body sprites along with the face sprites.
Ready for love, or just over-caffeinated?
I ask because I don't know if I can find it myself. It's kind of an odd request, and not something entirely sound (using outside sprites and editing them), but it's not to be posted to DA, and it's all in non-commercial good fun. I just want to pay homage to both sides and show that both old game and new game fans have a lot to offer. Don't know if I have anything to offer in trade (points, money, etc) as it is a derivative art project, but if you think you want to do it, just pop by and show me what you're capable of. I might ask for some odd requests (converting EGA sprites to VGA, for instance), but I'll try to credit you all in the finished product.
